Eclipse.

Ugly sneakers seem to be taking over the fashion world recently, but is it really any surprise when they look strangely cute and their thick soles make them appear both futuristic and old school all at the same time? Though this new trend may be hot, I like to pride myself on always being a major fan of sneakers in general (hello my unhealthy obsession love of Superga and platform sneakers), so I like to think I’m not exactly jumping aboard the bandwagon. But anyway. I came across these super cool sneakers a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love. Chunky, beautiful, and the stuff sneaker dreams are made of, what’s not to love?

But like most things I absolutely adore, if only it weren’t for the £450 price tag. That said, does anybody mind treating me to these? 😉

Alvechurch Biker Jacket.

Would you believe I’ve had my eyes on this jacket since August?! It’s times like these that I honestly believe in love at first sight because the moment I saw the jacket, I was infatuated and needed it immediately. I very neeeeearly bought it last month but decided £189 was a bit much to spend on the perfect wool biker jacket (what the hell was I thinking??), and even though I regretted not buying it, it wasn’t until I saw an image of a random girl wearing the jacket that I realised to error of my very foolish ways. Though black would seem like the likely choice to get the jacket in, alas it’s the grey version that has irrevocably stolen my heart.

The Christmas sales really couldn’t come soon enough. Fingers crossed this will be in the sale!! – So fashion gods if you can hear me…

Kyoto.

No, not the city, but the sock boot from 3.1 Phillip Lim. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know what sock boots have been all the rage of late (i.e. at least for the last eighteen months); but despite their popularity it’s taken me a little while to get behind the style. In fact, when I first saw the shoe I absolutely hated it. it wasn’t until my sister got a pair that my thoughts started to thaw and bit by bit I started to see their charm. However, it wasn’t until last week (I think) that I came to the realisation that they weren’t all bad – I personally blame Sunmi who rocked the shoe during her recent promotions for her latest single, Gashina – and stopped hating them. Then, on Sunday I made an announcement to my sister that I wanted to get a pair myself, and as if by some kind of magic, about ten minutes later, I stumbled upon these beauties. Now obviously at £525 I’m not planning on buying them anytime soon, but I wanted to share my fashion epiphany and style inspiration.

      

So what do we think? Yay or nay?

p.s If I ever do go to Kyoto, you can sure that I will let you know!

Superga X Luisaviaroma.

Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!

    

And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!

Wish List Wednesday: Le Specs Liar Liar.

There’s one major item I have on my wish list that I’m hoping to get before the end of the summer, and it’s Le Specs’ ‘Liar Liar’ sunglasses. Oversized, with tortoiseshell and a subtle cat-eye, these truly are the shades of dreams!

   

Truth be told I’ve actually had my eyes on these for a while, so definitely watch this space.

Cardigans for Fall.

We may be in the throes of summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to the coming season when temperatures will drop and we’ll be in need of something a little warmer. After my weekly roundup of the latest from net-a-porter, I saw a trend of thick knit cardigans (and jumpers) with various designs that’d look great come September when it’s cooler outside. There was one brand in particular that really stood out to me, Alanui, a newcomer to the site whose cardigans look especially warm and cosy, and would look especially comfy with jeans and sneakers.

     

Check out more from Alanui here.

Wwake.

As a strong believer that less is more, it makes perfect sense that I’d be going crazy over my latest net-a-porter finding: Wwake. Based in New York, Wwake is a fine jewellery line focused on delicate, dainty, stackable pieces that look effortless and super chic. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, as its this same simplicity that makes the pieces truly stand out, and is why my wish list is now currently packed with beautiful gems I’ll be saving up for.

              

Less truly is always more. For more, check them out here.
